Planner for Arts & Sciences Transfer - English (A.A.)


Official Title of Major: Arts and Sciences Transfer - English, A.A.

Award: Associate of Arts degree, A.A.

Code:  AA.ARTS-SCI.ENG

Total Credit Hours: 60

English - see www.aacc.edu

Purpose: Anne Arundel Community College’s Arts and Science Transfer Degree with a concentration in English is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in English and will transfer to all Maryland four-year public colleges. Students who study English at AACC will be challenged with taking a position and defending it with logic and reason. They will be taught to read analytically–to ask why–and to think critically and write persuasively. Since all of these skills transfer well to the job market, students who choose to pursue AACC’s Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree with a concentration in English set themselves up not only for transfer to four-year schools but for eventual careers across a wide range of occupations including publishing, journalism, media, advertising, marketing, public relations, education, technical communication, government, human services, public policy, research, law, and business.
